Tanka form...

Once, in a distant

Memory lived mirth and love,

Although slowly they

Vanished – nary a trace – as

All things left unattended.

Excellant tanka that captures and says so much about live and love. So many good relationships have perished because they were not nourished by both partners. Well done.

You have said a lot withing those lines. Memories can vanish when left unattended. Thank you for sharing Dawn.

Newfie Hugs, Rose
Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper 5/26/2008
A melancholy write, and the last sentence caps the thought perfectly. People often get too complacent in a relationship and all the romance seems to fade into oblivion.
Reviewed by F William Broome 5/26/2008
Yours are haunting words in a look back.

Mystery creeps in, and we wonder about events absorbed by time.

Your brief works continue to be well done

- Bill
